Kyndel + Neil = Married

About a month ago I got to photograph Kyndel and Neil's wedding in Amarillo, Texas. It was so amazing to be a part of their wedding weekend. I babysat Kyndel from when she was about 6 months old until I graduated high school and her Dad gave me my first job in the news media at KFDA Channel 10 in Amarillo. I love this family so it was especially wonderful to watch Kyndel tie the knot with the love of her life.

Here are the highlights!
The rings. The stained glass windows were so beautiful at Trinity Lutheran Church that I wanted to capture the colors in their rings...and you can never go wrong with the heart :)
Her dress and handmade jewelry. She had her grandmothers pearls made into jewelry for her wedding day. Love that!
Her shoes. Seriously love these windows.
The flower girls dropped fall leaves instead of rose petals since it was a fall wedding.
He sees her...she sees him :)
When she got the the end of the aisle, Neil wiped a tear away with his cowboy hat. I was crying too.
 A hug from dad.
And big smiles as they move up to the altar. This kid at the back of the church was so cute during the ceremony. 
Gorgeous church
The kiss!
Aren't they a beautiful couple? 
The gorgeous girls. 
 The handsome men
 They each wanted to do something fun with the bridal party as well.
 The whole wedding party. What a fun group!
 Reception details. I had to photograph these little glass plates. They reminded me of all the church socials I went to as a kid and Kyndel is an Eagles fan while Neil is a cowboys fan. 
Mike Chism and Hollow Point played their reception at the Amarillo Civic Center.
First dance
Kyndel's mom had a surprise for her. She had Kevin Fowler record an introduction to the Father Daughter Dance Congratulating Kyndel and Neil on their marriage. They danced to his song "Daddies and Daughters". Kyndel was shocked! It was really fun to watch.
Love this. 
Mother Son Dance :)
And the party gets started!
 A sweet moment at their table when no one was looking...except me ;)
The bouqut and garter toss.
  I love this couple. They were so much fun to photograph. We've been all over the state of Texas for their wedding. We started with some...not so real engagement photos in Nacodoches last may, then real engagement photos in Normangee, Bridals in Waco and finally their wedding in Amarillo. We did a day after session at the Cadillac Ranch and it was COLD. Kyndel was a trooper in her strapless dress while the rest of us had on long sleeves, and jackets but the pictures are amazing so it was worth it. There was a tourist at the Cadillacs who gave us his can of spray paint when he was done so we painted their wedding date on one of the cars :)
My favorite.
 Then we went downtown and took some photos. Fun sun flare at this heart bench.
 Shadows on a distressed wall.
More favorites.
 Under the veil.
 Congratulations Kyndel and Neil! Thanks for letting me be a part of the wonderful that was your wedding :)
